Instructions For Authors

The VPJU is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing video content related to sexual medicine and, in particular, prosthetic urology. The journal is interested in novel technology and devices as well as “how I do it” surgical expositions. Recommendations for trouble shooting surgical procedures, addressing complications and the corrections for problems are encouraged. Articles will be peer reviewed by leading experts in the field of sexual medicine and prosthetic urology. Because of the permanent nature of a video submission as compared to a written article, peer review will be open i.e. authors names will be known to the reviewer. Due to the difficulty of video revision, decisions by peer review will strongly tend toward acceptance or rejection rather than “accept with revision”. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least two reviewers and final publication decision will be made by Editor in Chief on the basis of these recommendations.

The VJPU will be freely available to all members of the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM), which includes members of the the Asia Pacific Society for Sexual Medicine (APSSM), the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM), the Sociedad Latino-Americano de Medicina Sexual (SLAMS), the Middle East Society for Sexual Medicine (MESSM), the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA), and the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health (ISSWSH). The VPJU is supported by commercial sponsors whose videos can also be viewed on this site. We encourage members of our viewing audience to express their appreciation to these sponsors for their support of our education.

All authors listed on the video are required to declare all competing interests in relation to the video. All videos should have a disclaimer at the beginning of the video listing in writing all competing interests whether financial or non financial for each author. If an author has no competing interests the statement should read, “the author has no disclosures”. If competing interests become public after publication of the article that had not been disclosed, the article will be removed from the VJPU and no further articles will be accepted from that author. If you are unsure whether you have a competing interest, please contact the editor before submission.Ethics & Patient Consent Authors will be expected to have obtained ethics committee approval and informed patient consent for a video submission that is experimental or where a procedure varied from the usual clinical practice to meet the patient’s clinical need. In cases where details or images could be recognizable by the individual participating in the video, consent must be documented visually in the film. In cases where images are entirely unidentifiable and there are no details on individuals, consent for display is not required.

  1. Provide email contact, phone contact and postal address for the electronic submitter so we can inform of publication decision. Communication from VJPU will be electronic, the phone and postal are for backup only. The submitter will be responsible obtaining disclosures and for informing his co-authors. The electronic submitter must be an author.
  2. Cover letter: In this accompanying email, please explain what makes your submission unique and of interest to the membership of the Sexual Medicine Societies (ISSM and affiliates APSSM, ESSM, ISSWSH, SLAMS, MESSM, SMSNA) and/or the Society of Prosthetic Urologists (SUPS). You may also suggest known authorities to peer review your submission but the editorial committee is not required to adhere to your suggested reviewers.
  3. Submit your finished video in accordance with the instructions for Video Formatting and Delivery.
